Free Membership Terms & Conditions
for RDF Free Memberships plans only
(Last updated 16th March 2021)
The Roger Diamond Foundation (RDF) is an education and research charity. Herein referred to as ‘The Roger Diamond Foundation' or ‘RDF’ or ‘us’. We are not-for-profit organisation.
Terms & Conditions - Updates
We are constantly evolving and improving, therefore our Terms & Conditions are amended from time to time (to reflect new knowledge or improvements). It is best to check back to this page now and then - for the most recent updates.
Free membership is usually for a minimum of one year or as advertised. At the end of the Membership period you may be offered a renewal (by an automated system) and may have another free period if that is on offer, otherwise you can renew your membership at the price advertised on our website at the point of renewal.
Free Membership Benefits may change from time-to-time according to circumstances - but those changes will always be mentioned here on our main website - usually on the Membership page under the 'Membership Benefits' heading, and/or via emails to our Free Membership members.
Discounted, Negotiated Fees, 'Pay as You Go' and free services
Discounted, 'Pay as You Go' and free services are provided to beneficiaries individually on a case-by-case and availability basis. That decision will usually be made by the Project Manager if any, and/or the CEO, and/or the Chairman of Trustees of RDF - the details of which are usually published on our main website (currently www.rdfcharity.org.uk) at any given time.
Changing Memberships at renewal date
When your type of Online Membership has come to an end you may be able to choose a different type of RDF Membership provided it is relevant to you and you qualify for that Membership.
Membership Application Process in General
After an initial Online Membership application has been accepted by The Roger Diamond Foundation, and the subscription paid if applicable for the current year, the new member having created a log-in password will be provided with access to online resources and will be sent automated email confirmation of Membership.
Applications which do not meet the membership category criteria, will be reviewed by the Chairman or other member of the Trustees Committee. If not accepted, the applicant will usually be informed. However, The Roger Diamond Foundation does not have a legal obligation to provide the applicant a reason for not accepting their application for membership.
It is the duty of members to advise The Roger Diamond Foundation (RDF) in writing of any change in personal circumstances that could lead to a change in their subscription rate/s or ticket prices. For example, to notify us if you cease to qualify for a free or reduced subscription rate or event ticket.
Newsletters & Email Updates
Membership to The Roger Diamond Foundation (RDF) includes automatically subscribing to us for email updates and/or receiving e-newsletters from us. If you wish to unsubscribe to updates and newsletters – you can do so at any time via the Membership Subscription Account facility, or alternatively in writing to the RDF Chairman or RDF Secretary by emailing: [email protected]
You may cancel your Membership at any time.
Membership Renewals / Applications
Membership is usually for 12 months, at the end of which you may be invited to renew; but most times your free membership will just continue after 12 months until further notice or until any changes referred to on our website.

1) To assess eligibility and the correct category for membership.
